Materials recovery with recycling plants
…recycling plants today for a better tomorrow.
The very foundation of HAZEMAG for recycling plants started when in 1946 HAZEMAG developed the Andreas Impactor, the very first Impact Crusher of its kind, designed to process the massive amounts of rubble that had to be cleared in Germany. In this way, we try to have a positive impact against the waste of materials such as plastic.
Today HAZEMAG’s dedicated recycling team is a significant part of HAZEMAG’s traditional, global values, giving life to previously used and valuable resources benefitting the planet and its inhabitants.
With its process know-how, high quality, innovative machines and recycling plants, HAZEMAG remains a global leader providing proven and custom-made solutions in the crushing and recycling of materials such as rubble, concrete, asphalt, glass and many more.
In our test centre we have the recycling equipment and capabilities to test our customer’s product in order to provide the best quality solution for recycling plants and material recovery at all times.
Perhaps more than many other industries, the success of the recycling group is highly determined by the control and management of the raw to ensure high-quality recycling plants and reduce the waste of materials. To achieve this, the processing system must offer a very high level of flexibility, extreme ruggedness, high technology and the ability to adapt to an extensive variation range in the raw materials. The decision between a fixed/stationary recycling plant versus a mobile recycling plant are solely determined by the availability of raw materials, annual projected production rates and the local demand for the recycled products. Under the correct management controls, the success and profitability of a recycling facility can easily be realized.
Quality control, raw material management and the needed processing methods are realized in a variety of ways, such as;
- selective demolition of buildings
- inspection/monitoring of the incoming material
- raw material stockpiling according to its makeup/ mixture
- material preparation: pre-sizing, sorting and removal of larger tramp irons
- raw material identification, classifying and selective sorting
- metal identification, preparation and possible removal
- sorting out of non-mineral fractions
- separation of light materials
In recycling plants, the design of the recycling plant will be defined by the makeup and characteristics of feed material. The flexibility and components that make up the plant must be capable of processing a raw feed material that can range from clean building rubble, mixed building rubble and large concrete products; all of which can potentially contain large amounts of tramp irons.
The requirements on the finished product; defined as the grain size and needed distribution of each, product shape requirements, material composition and perhaps most important its quality in regard to purity, clean materials, will define and reflect the plants level of technology and automation.
The successful processing of a wide range of demolition and construction debris into an acceptable, saleable product is the target of processing with recycling plants. This is particularly relevant in the business of rubble processing, where crushing and screening plants are commonly employed. In our material recovery facilities, we are working on optimized equipment to reduce the waste of materials such as minerals, metals and more.
For the processing of building rubble, the availability of proven machines and technology is certainly known. Although the overall design and selection of the ancillary machines can vary, the heart and key component of any recycling plant is found in its crushing unit, which without any doubt will help determine the success and profitability for any operation. Therefore, we can reduce the waste of usable materials.
